  • Dressers work great for pots and pans, and of course silverware.
  • Old armoires make great pantries.
  • A buffet can be cut out on top to accommodate a kitchen Sink.

For a clean together look:Organize a variety of cabinets and dressers to fit into your plan. Cut legs and edges where you need to and add fillers to give the cabinetry a complete flush look. Finish by painting the completed pieced cabinetry in one high gloss color. Add your countertop and your kitchen is complete.

If you like funky: Repurpose odd cabinet finds in an uneven stacked look. This is easy and fun. Different finishes will add to the coolness.

  • Have fun shopping and purchase new drawer and cabinet pulls to replace old ones.
  • Faucets can easily be changed as well.
